Hot Or Not: The Disruptive Tech Outlook for 2011

As you start out the new year, what new technologies should be on your radar, and which ones can you safely ignore? Charlene Li, founder of Altimeter Group and author of “Open Leadership” and “Groundswell” will provide her take on what the new year will bring. Topics will include the rise and use of social data, the evolution of new search technologies, and the evolution of consumer experiences.

But more than just a rundown of new technologies, the evening will focus on what companies today need to do to prepare for this disruptive future. You’ll walk out at the end of the evening armed with pragmatic, practical steps to take.
